Comag Matamata Swifts had an unhappy time of it over the hill this weekend, going down 4-0 to WaiBOP Premiership leaders, Papamoa.

The Swifts were down by three at the break and had also lost captain, Dwayne Signal, to a serious looking injury in what was an ugly first 45 minutes for the team.

When Papamoa added a fourth near the start of the second half things looked grim, but the side rallied, showed some heart and spirit, and avoided any further damage.

Signal’s injury was the latest in a long line of physical catastrophes that have destroyed Matamata’s season. With a run of games to come against teams just above them in the table, it was the last thing the side needed as they look to secure their Premiership status for another season.
